Top Halloween Songs to Play Besides "Thriller" & "Monster Mash"

     As I write this blog, Halloween is only 3 days away! The day of trick or treaters and frightful fun is right around the corner! As a DJ, Halloween means 1 thing...PARTIES! Consequently, along with Halloween parties comes the inevitable song requests for “Thriller” by Michael Jackson (you have to play it at least 2-4 times on Halloween) and The Monster Mash by Bobby “Boris” Pickett. Although, I find it cliché, both songs are rhetorically expected to be played at any Halloween event. I personally, like to think outside the box, and for Halloween, that means I strive to play a few additional songs that may have a “ghoulish” message for the spirit of Halloween. So, below is Top Notch's Top 10 Halloween songs that ARE NOT “Thriller” nor the “Monster Mash” with links to preview each tune as well. Enjoy guys and Happy Halloween!!!

  1. “This is Halloween” by Panic at the Disco (also performed by Marilyn Manson and The Nightmare before Christmas soundtrack)

  2. “Don't fear the Reaper” by Blue Oyster Cult

  3. “Ghostbusters” theme song by Ray Parker Jr.

  4. “Somebody's Watching Me” by Rockwell

  5. “Halloweenhead” by Ryan Adams.

  6. “Running with the Devil” by Van Halen

  7. “Bark at the Moon” by Ozzy Osbourne

  8. “I Put a Spell On You” by “Screamin” Jay Hawkins

  9. “Werewolves of London” by Warren Zevon

  10. “Living Dead Girl” by Rob Zombie
